一、 課程說明(Course Description)
Physical Chemistry I is a class focusing on gaining understandings toward chemical thermodynamics topics such as work, heat, internal energy, heat capacity, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, Helmholtz free energy, Gibbs free energy, Maxwell relations, chemical potential…etc. In this class, we will focus on (but not limited to) the following topics:
1. The properties of gases
2. The first law of thermodynamics
3. The second law of thermodynamics
4. Physical transformations of pure substances
5. Simple mixture
6. Phase diagrams
7. Chemical equilibrium
After this class, you should be able to use the methods of equilibrium thermodynamics to describe the properties and processes of macroscopic systems.
